Hi y'all,

I'm trying to record a screen cast by issuing the command:
<code>
@ vlc screen://
</code>

In return, the following error message is printed to screen:
<code>
VLC media player 0.8.6 Janus
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  141 (XVideo)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  19 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  89
  Current serial number in output stream:  90
pure virtual method called
terminate called without an active exception
Aborted (core dumped)
</code>

I'm running Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn). Nothing special was running in the background when the command was issued. Any idea what the problem is and, more importantly, how to overcome it?
